Prepare For The Rug Event
We host this special event once a year to bring these high quality, fairly traded hand-knotted rugs to our community. Since the rugs will be here for just a few days, we encourage you to do a little prep.
- When you visit our rug event, bring swatches of materials and upholstery, paint chips and pillows to help you choose a rug that will blend with your decor.
- Measure your room as well as the area you would want your rug to cover. Large rugs are impressive while smaller rugs can be more versatile. Be flexible in sizing and you will increase the number of rugs to choose from.
- Remember that a rug made with high quality materials will last for generations, while your furniture, upholstery and home will change.
- Consider rugs that speak to you, rather than one that simply matches its surroundings. Be open to taking rugs home on approval, keeping in mind the rug you finally choose may not be the rug you first selected.
